I'm checked in at the San Francisco Airport waiting to board my plane back home. It has been a very busy, productive week for me with the last four days learning many aspects of sea-floor sediment core analysis. I was privileged to help the team with several core analysis jobs, getting my hands dirty but always smiling. I'm going to have a series of journal entries describing much of what we studied from two arctic coring sites we visited last summer on the Healy, but for now I'm a little too knackered to say much more in any kind of articulate fashion. So I'll leave you with a lovely shot of a split core sample taken in the Beaufort SeaThe Beaufort Sea lies to the north of Alaska and the Yukon and Northwest Territories.- what do you think you can find in the mud upon close inspection?
That's all for now- Bill
